    Hi all,

    Just as you think you have enough to think about, the powers that be come out with the Freedom of Information Act. Part of which bangs on about having a retention and destruction policy for the various documents that an authority holds. Now, this may be easy for some departments, but we here at the Forest of Dean are having problems getting an answer for the periods that we should retain housing and council tax benefit documents and other revenue related documents. The publication
    ” Retention guidelines for Local Authorities” (A guide produced by the Local Government group of the records Management Society) details every local government department except Revenues! 🙄

    Does anybody have a specific policy for the retention and destruction of documents relating to revenues that I could, erm, borrow? 😀
